Innsbruck, Bern, and northern Italy?

Jump to last reply

Hello! We will be visiting friends near Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) next summer and want to do some traveling afterward. We are planning approximately 15 days of travel. This is VERY preliminary, just want to get some ideas of which locations to begin scouting out. We are planning to drive, and this is what we have so far on our radar:

- Innsbruck, Austria (definitely)
- Milan, Italy (??)
- Nice and/or Monoco and/or Cannes (??)
- Bern, Switzerland (definitely)

We plan to spend 2-3 days in each location and want to see as much as we can without constantly being on the road. Our particular interests are (1) great scenery (lakes, mountains), and (2) historic buildings (castles, etc.) Don't really care about "nightlife" etc..

I absolutely plan to do some extensive research before finalizing any sort of itinerary, but just wanted to get some idea of where to get started, what "must" be seen, etc.

Thanks in advance to all my fellow Fodorites! :-)
